Official Statement on Carrie Fisher’s Star Wars Future

LucasFilm have released a statement confirming that they will not be digitally recreating Carrie Fisher in future Star Wars movies.

A report earlier this week claimed that Disney were in discussions with Fisher’s family and estate over using CGI to feature Leia Organa, much in the same way that Peter Cushing ‘appeared’ as Grand Moff Tarkin in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The statement on the official Star Wars website reads;

We don’t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa.

Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. We are still hurting from her loss. We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.

Fisher passed away on 27 December, though she had already filmed her scenes for Star Wars Episode 8. It is believed that her character had a major role in both that and Episode 9.

Star Wars Episode 8 is due for release on December 15.
